Our first project was a major failure. We attempted to make snowflakes by folding white paper and cutting slits in the folds. Scissors turned out to be too big of a challenge for Spencer, although he very much likes them. I guess we'll put them away for a while.
Our second project was to make Rudolph. First, we stamped Spencer's hand print onto a piece of paper. Once dried, I glued on a red pom pom for the nose and some googly eyes.Then he painted onto a piece of thin cardboard with both a foam paintbrush and a small branch I cut from our Christmas tree. Then he glued some needles from the tree branch onto the cardboard. Once that was dry, I glued his hand print onto the cardboard. I did learn my lesson during this project: Do not leave my child unattended with a bottle of Elmer's glue. I was gone a few minutes to change Ashton's diaper. When I came back, there was a big puddle of glue on the table. Spencer had unscrewed the cap from the glue and dumped it all out.
